a snow flake fallsa snow flake fallsinto the warmth of my hand –safe
the old citadelthe old citadelechoes with birdsong –a green forest
a white cata white catin my pathgood luck?
The full moonthe full moon —just another lightin a crowded sky
Just above the cloudsJust above the clouds,at 500 mph —the stars do not move
dusty chessboarddusty chessboard the old master yieldsto his grandson
Pigment FieldsFlower heads bobbingwithin the heartbeat of wind — Colours become one
night sky haikuadorningthe temple's roofcrescent moon
Will I also returnI was young as spring, and held to an autumn's wind like pomegranates hung from the highest branches before black crows hollowed them •autumn flurries came with the scent of fallen fruit, piles of dying leaves,dark brothers crushed underfoot to be shelter for next spring

Mosquito Songsun ray's spun silverhumming blood-drunk ballades:mosquito song
Untitledearly autumn windshakes the black-holed seed boxesand nothing falls out
24 Hoursi.Dreams will slowly fadeas dawn breaks through the windows;morning’s here again.ii.Stomachs growl and groanas smells from the kitchen waft;afternoon is here.iii.Dusk paints a red sky,the sun retires for the night;evening shall bring peace.iv.The stars and moon dance,a waltz of shining passion;night has come at last.
